Creating the gold flower:
This is when I really could have used the Cricut Explore (again, I didn’t have access to it at the time).
- gold paper
Step 1: Cut out 8 petals, a circle and a wedge like below.
Step 2: Form the wedge into a circle and glue together.
Step 3: Cut the wedge so there is no point at the end.
Step 4: Curl each petal with a pen or paintbrush or something.
Step 5: Glue each petal into the circle you created spilling them out each way.
Step 6: Top it with the circle.
Step 7: Glue onto your gift!
